Setting up live streaming audio server


What would you recommend for live audio streaming? our local radio station would like to broadcast live on the internet. We'd prefer something that:
1)- was relativily easy to set up or has good documentation.
2)- can be streamed from a 128kbs internet connection.
3)- is compatible with the most popular audio players.
Could anyone provide me with some options?

The Icecast site works fine from here. It's your best option, you could look at SHOUTcast which is free but not open source (as far as I know). Best of luck, both sites contain very good documentation so I'm sure once you manage to download one or the other you'll be able to work things out from there.

Now I'm just wondering if it's a good idea to have that running on our relativly slow internet connection, and what happens if the whole internet finds it and decides to listen? does that pretty much kill our upload here our does it not make a difference?
BTW, Icecast didn't open because my hub was acting up.

Of course it'll kill your upload. You have a designated upstream bandwidth, if it's 95% used by listeners, then 5% is left for whatever else. Better setup some good squid rules so the guys around the office get off the Bittorrent.
